I was born in Salem, Missouri, but raised in the small town of Lesterville. Lesterville is at the forks of the beautiful Black River in Reynolds County. I was an only child so I filled my time with books, horses, and playing in the woods and the river. I attended college on volleyball scholarships at Jefferson College in Hillsboro, Missouri and then went on to Ole Miss. Upon graduating, I was hired at Three Rivers Community College. I was a very successful volleyball coach, but not so good at basketball. After leaving Three Rivers I went back to school and was working on a Masters in Guidance and counseling when I became pregnant with my son, Josh. Josh is my only child and such a joy to be around! Over the years I have worked as a bartender & manager in various places but never be returned to teaching and coaching. I had a stroke in October 2010. I was very lucky to survive! I have been disabled since then. Geneology is my new passion! I have had fairly good luck finding my maternal family. Those surnames include Counts, Hudson, & Blythe. My father's side is mostly the dreaded "Smith", Brewer, & Berryman. I have a scrapbook with some nice photos of Hudsons, Blythes, Bowdens and Waters that came from my Mom. I am very willing to share my photos as well as any information I might have. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or information to share! Donna Mae

I just wanted to stop by and thank you for the effort you put forth for Team Missouri during this years Connect-a-thon. We couldn't have done as well as we did without your contributions! I hope you had fun, which is the bottom line. Looking forward to seeing you for the Fall Source-a-thon event.

Hi Donna

We have a few things in common I also had a small stroke last May I have been to Reynolds County three time and have many phots My cousin Brock Counts took me out in the back woods to Logan Creek. The area reminded me of Ireland where my Mooney gg grandfather came from all side hill and rocks. Very hard place to grow potatoes 😛 I have a cousin living in Shannon county Judy Mooney Heller. Her husband is a judge there. The Hellers live on Blair creek on the old farm

My stroke was a major life-changing event. I had an aneurysm and was lucky to survive! I grew up in Reynolds county and knew of Brock. My grandparents lived on the Counts farm on Logan Creek. It is a hilly, rocky area, but beautiful! You have many cousins here! My life partner grew up in Seal Beach CA. I hope to visit again soon (we went there in 2015). Maybe we can hook up.
Hi Donna! We are 11th cousins through Andrew Reade. However, I believe Dorcas is definitely related to my Moody lineage. My Moody's were mostly born in Grainger County, Tennessee like Dorcas. I've heard that the Moody's n Grainger are all related to each other. We are probably related through her too. Do you know who her parents were?

Your welcome! Old Nim got a little sprucing up. Hoping to make him more attractive to a certain someone!! :) If this doesn't work I can probably add more! lol
Hi, Donna. Thought I'd put a msg here this time instead of email. I changed the privacy level for Mattie Quinn, but can't figure out how to add you to the trusted list &/or make you manager without your email address. So, if you don't mind answering to one of the private emails I sent to you, I'll be able to give you control for Mattie, & for any other shared relatives you'd like to contribute information on their profiles.
Hi Donna,

How are you? I'm David a WikiTree Mentor. Thanks for adding profiles to WikiTree. There are reasons behind the eighth point in our Honor Code: "We cite sources. Without sources we can't objectively resolve conflicting information." A source provides a way to find out more about the person. Showing sources reduces confusion and duplicates.

Here is what our Sources help page says. It has lots of ideas:

The Sources Style Guide shows how to enter sources in the biography.

And I'm here to help too, just ask!

Thank you, David ~ WikiTree Mentor

Hi, Donna! I'm glad to help with your profiles! I found them while working on one of the weekly Data Doctors projects.

I've learned a lot from these challenges on how to improve my own profiles... and I get to help make the shared family tree better. Everyone wins!  :)
